Photocontrol of boilogical activity


Optical switching of photocontrolled biologically active compounds called “lumobiotics” in biological tissue

These experiments were part of the project “PHOTOCONTROLLED ANALOGS OF NATURAL CYTOTOXIC PEPTIDES FOR IMMUNOTHERAPY OF METASTATIC CANCER,” which was funded by the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.
